Emmanuelle Haïm


Emmanuelle Haïm is highly acclaimed as a performer and champion of Baroque repertoire, both as a keyboard player and conductor. This season she makes her debuts with the New York Philharmonic and The Philadelphia Orchestra. She also conducts a new production of Rameau’s Hippolyte et Aricie at Zurich Opera. Her recent debuts have included the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra as well as the Vienna Philharmonic, with performances in Vienna and at the Lucerne Festival. She regularly conducts both the Berlin Philharmonic and Los Angeles Philharmonic.

In 2000 Ms. Haïm founded Le Concert d’Astrée, which has quickly established an international reputation. During the 2018–19 season the ensemble’s performances include new productions of Handel’s Rodelinda at Lille Opera and Rameau’s Les Boréades in Dijon. They also undertake a major European tour with a Handel program, with Sandrine Piau and Tim Mead, titled Desperate Lovers, with performances in Paris, Vienna, Geneva, and Barcelona. Le Concert d’Astrée has its residency in Lille, and its musicians are passionate and active ambassadors for this region.

Ms. Haïm has conducted regularly at Glyndebourne Festival Opera, including Handel’s Theodora and Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea, and has performed Rodelinda with Glyndebourne Touring Opera. She was the first woman to conduct at Lyric Opera of Chicago, leading a production of Handel’s Giulio Cesare.

With Le Concert d’Astrée, Ms. Haïm has a very extensive discography with Erato / Warner Classics. Their recordings have won numerous awards including Victoires de la Musique Classique (for Lamenti and Carestini), the Echo Deutscher Musikpreis, and Grammy Award nominations. Their most recent releases are DVDs of Mozart’s Mitridate and Handel’s Il trionfo del tempo e del disinganno.

Emmanuelle Haïm is a Chevalier de l’Ordre National de la Légion d’Honneur, an Officier des Arts et des Lettres, an Officier de l’ordre national du Mérite, and an Honorary Member of the Royal Academy of Music.
